Actress Lisa Nicole Carson: “I Thought I Had It All Together”

Hey Popped People!

I was really glad to see this article featuring an essay by actress Lisa Nicole Carson. She talks about her struggles with bipolar disorder over the years.

I think it’s really important for black women to know that it is ok to admit that we struggle with mental health issues and that it’s ok to seek help. There’s no need to suffer in silence in order to keep up appearances of being the “strong, black woman.”

Let me know what you think of what Ms. Carson has to say! And keep it poppin’ as always 😉

    Thanks for sharing. I particularly like how she ended her essay with “We have the right to fall. We have the right not to always have our sh– together.” I think all women need to know this and disconnect from chasing after perfection. I’m glad that she was willing to share her story and hope to see her acting again.
